The FLITE Provides high performance dynamic riding with big lofty jumps even in the lightest of wind

The Flite is the lightest Kite we’ve ever made, but don’t let that make you think it’s like every other light wind kite on the market. This kite isn’t just built to fly in light wind, it’s built to perform. Tested on the rocky pacific northwest waters, the Flite’s innovative construction still allows riders the chance to ride waves, boost big lofty jumps, and can build immense speed for those on a foil board. The Flite truly is the only high performance light wind kite.

Sizes: 17, 14.5, 12, 10, 8





The Flite features a high aspect ratio to produce greater lift and while generating less drag for a kite that lifts you windward.



Creating a light wind performance kite is no easy task. The Flite contains a wide arc and large projected area to produce as much power per square meter as possible.


This precision engineered wide 3 strut frame is constructed to get the most power out of every square inch possible for high velocity foil boarding and pure performance in light winds.

Constructed with a custom blend two dacrons provides the a carefully crafted balance of tenacity and agility. The struts are made of KP-E dacron providing incredible strength, durability, and rigidity; While the leading edge is made from Teijin dacron in order to reduce the overall weight without sacrificing its moxie.



A fixed short line bridle with a floating V design and a two pulley system creates direct and snappy response while also keeping bar pressure low. New to this generation are larks head loops on front bridles, and knots on the back lines making for an innovative system that stabilizes the leading edge. This allows the Flite to lift out of a loop and avoiding a stall for maximum climb.



A single front line flag out systemin is used allowing the rider to achieve maximum de-power if the trim loop release is activated..

WARNING! It is crucial that the bar you are using utilizes this system. 

Note: For Next Gen kites we have changed the bridles on our kites so that the front attachments have loops and the back attachments have knots.

In order to use a previous generation Ocean Rodeo bar with a Next Gen kite, you must first install the OR Bar Bridle Adapter Kit (which can be purchased from a dealer or directly from Ocean Rodeo) to the bridles on the kite. This will change the bridles so that the front attachments have knots and the back attachments have loops. Thus making it compatible with the older model bars.




Dimension Polyant’s K-PE dacron utilizes PEN (polyethylene naphthalate) fibers in the warp direction. PEN has a higher modulus than polyester and these fabrics exhibit approximately 30 to 40% lower stretch than their polyester equivalents. This makes K-PE the ideal choice for kite dacron where low stretch is a top priority.

K-PE fabrics are produced utilizing DP’s patented X-PLY® technique assuring reliable performance and the highest quality lamination available on the market.



Designed specifically for the kiteboarding market, Teijin’s Technoforce D2 Ripstop has high tear resistance, low stretch, and is incredibly light weight.

Each Strand of yarn is individually coated before being woven together. A second surface coating is then applied to the material, providing long term endurance.

Teijin D2 is the benchmark in quality with proven superiority in durability and dynamics.



Designed specifically to combat the loads in an inflatable leading edge kite. This material has been shown to hold a kite’s shape better and longer than others by over 60%. We use warp oriented constructions using Ultra High tenacity yarns with an increased thread count to combat elongation in the warp direction under high inflation pressures. Lower elongation makes for a more accurate kite with less deformation while in flight.



The Ocean Rodeo Shift Bar truly unlocks the full potential of your next gen kite lineup. This back line trim bar gives the ability to dial in and adjust your trim line without the need to overreach. With Innovate 3’s patented innovative sidewinder nob, the Stick Shift allows for accurate adjustment no matter how rugged the conditions are. Tried and tested on the rugged waters off of Vancouver Island, this bar is built tough with an elegant ease of use.




New Curved struts hold the designed foil shape delivering the desired performance through the wind range.



Designed to offer the most aerodynamic air frame, we’ve tapered the ends of both the leading edge and struts to deliver the ultimate in drag reduction.



Every aspect of our Speed Inflation system has been fine tuned over the years to be low profile, reduce drag, and above all to ensure that you spends less time on the beach and more time on the water.


Featuring all new EVA Clamp covers. See if your clip is open or shut. Light and easy to operate.



Ultra Flite Technology

Using a custom blend of state of the art fabrics and components, we’ve been able to dramatically reduce the Flite’s weight by just about half a pound in it’s larger sizes! We also use custom blended UV film in our strut and leading edge bladders to achieve low weight with outstanding durability.

Direct hose to valve connection for simple operation. Wide threaded cap is easy to tighten and even easier to unscrew eliminating the jammed valve cap syndrome. Cap is leashed to the kite, and the valve cover has be been re-shaped for smooth no snag fit.



Ultra-light, non fraying, and abrasion resistant, these Kevlar/ nylon blend scuff protection pads deliver a streamlined no snag profile throughout the kite.



Keeps line lengths equal when fine tuning kite turning speed.



15 years of kite design and manufacturing has taught us more than a few tricks about using strategic seam placement to reduce the stress points between the trailing edge’s dacron and the canopy’s ripstop materials. This combinded with load distributing reinforcement patches enhance the kite’s performance and durability.

Ultra-light, non fraying, and abrasion resistant, these Kevlar/ nylon blend scuff protection pads deliver a streamlined no snag profile throughout the kite.



This three stage zig-zag stitch, combined with 10mm tape, distributes the seam load and creates a tear resistant, long lasting seam.



Tailor your kite’s performance to match your riding style and launch conditions. Longer lines generate more power while shorter lines increase speed and response. Ultra-short lines provide immediate rider feedback to the kite and a direct, snappy feel with added advantage of simplified line management at tricky launching and landing sites.



The Leading Edge access port has been redesigned. The zip entry access to bladders is neatly finished delivering a super clean entry into the leading edge compartment.
